Behind the Headlines Video
I recently spoke of high-profile people who are complete hypocrites when it comes to the gun issue (here). They should possess firearms -- even illegal ones. But not you.
Even some media -- who claim to tell you the truth -- are among the hypocrites.
NBC's David Gregory is the face of media hypocrisy. He mocked the idea of armed guards at schools. But there are 7 armed guards at his children's school.
[This doesn't even include the armed Secret Service agents stationed at his children's school which is one of the nation's most expensive -- and elite -- private schools because this is where the Obama daughters attend. The school has its own private security force of 11 personnel including the 7 armed guards.]
[David Gregory probably believes his children have greater human value than the children of the NBC television audience.]
On Meet the Press he broke Washington, DC gun laws even after DC police denied permission to display a banned 30-round ammo clip.
Carl Rowan was a nationally-syndicated Washington Post columnist who argued for gun bans and mandatory jail sentences. But he said he was justified for shooting -- with an illegal handgun -- a teenager skinny dipping in his pool.
The [White Plains,] New York Journal-News published the name, address and map of every registered handgun owner in the surrounding area. Former burglars say that tells crooks who they should rob.
[The Journal-News contact information is here.]
[A clever blogger turned the tables. He published the names, addresses and satellite images of the homes of the reporter, the publisher and the CEO of the parent company: Gannett.]
The newspaper has an armed security force. And the reporter who wrote the story has a New York City hand gun permit.
As for NBC’s David Gregory, journalists went nuts saying he shouldn’t be prosecuted for breaking a gun law (here, here, here, here & here).
[Columnist Howard Kurtz was one of those who promoted the absurd and totally hypocritical argument that Gregory's gun law violation was acceptable.]
Their argument? He's not guilty by reason of celebrity.
